Although probably not the largest in the country, Chinatown in Liverpool is quaint, well decorated, and holds some lovely Chinese restaurants.
Chinatown in Liverpool was the first established “Chinatown” in Europe and could be seen in its early stages in the early 1900s with immigrants having arrived in the area as early as 1855. The Chinese settlers in Liverpool were forced during the war to move from their original settlements and move towards Duke Street and Nelson Street after some bombings in the area. My favourite part of this area is the stunning Chinese Archway at the top of Nelson Street – it looks absolutely stunning and at 15m high, is the largest in Europe.
This was constructed in 2000 and has become a major landmark in the area with tourists regularly flocking to take photos of it (like I did). This was imported from Shanghai in sections and then put together by craftsmen from China upon its arrival in Liverpool. Visually, this is a stunning piece of work and I could honestly photograph it from hundreds of different angles and with different cameras and whatnot. For me, this marks the main area in Chinatown and hence, the reason why when I am in Liverpool, I always end up coming back here, even if it is just for a stroll. What I also enjoy is that some restaurants are open ’til 3am, meaning even the latest of eaters can get a decent Chinese meal in Liverpool.

What I got is the Lomo'Instant Black Edition. Its texture and finish is quite simple, and could work as creative space for someone who's into DIY and decorations. In terms of form, it is very handy and acceptable in size. I also love the camera strap that makes it easy to carry.

At this day and age, it's always a delight to know that analogue photography is still very much alive and well. In London, Labyrinth Photographic Printing celebrates this art by holding an annual exhibition of film photographs by various photographers.
We love our cameras. We especially love it when you love our cameras. And we get super pumped when you tell us about it.

Climbing a mountain is always fun. Climbing a volcano is even better. And climbing the highest mountain in a country, well, that tops it all. So you can just imagine how much I enjoyed climbing Mount Hallasan, the highest mountain in South Korea.
Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, was once the great capital of India back when the British ruled our country. This is my hometown, and not the place I study in. I enjoy photographing various urban scenes around it and this is a curated gallery of sorts introducing the old city for you wonderful people.
As the largest park in Union Country, New Jersey, The Watchung Reservation makes an ideal venue for hiking and outdoor photography. Visitors can look forward to a trailside, lake that freezes in winter, and a Science Center, among other natural attractions. With cameras and the new Petzval Lens in tow, the Lomography NYC lab team and I paid the park a visit, and this is what we found.
The entire Kodak Elitechrome series belong to my favorite films. From the EB, to the EBX, ED, and EL; they all have great features once you know how to use them well. The EL with its 400 ISO hardly gets any attention, which is also because of the fact that it is more uncommon. But that is about to change with this. Here's some e-love.
